Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has been a key figure of the underground music scene for over 30 years. A cult artist in prepunk and post-punk groups Throbbing Gristle (1975 to 1981) and Psychic TV (1981 to present), he is considered to be the father of industrial music and a pioneer of acid house and techno. Not content with breaking new ground in music, Genesis has also used his position at the limits of society to challenge the very fundamentals of biology.
Transformation is, indeed, central to his life. He became a she to resemble his beloved Lady Jaye, now deceased. With peroxide hair, full lips and gold teeth, Genesis does not go unnoticed. A unique life, modeled on his other, Lady Jaye, who remains an integral part of himself. Without subscribing to any movement but living life as the ultimate experiment, he has made his body a work of art.
A kaleidoscopic collection of moving surfaces, composed of interviews (Orlan, Peaches, Peter Christopherson), role plays, concerts and his day to day life, comes together to paint a multi-faceted profile of this pioneer of industrial music and in doing so, exposes the abundant yet inherently elusive nature of his creativity.

Sometimes a beach isn't just a beach. As the sun goes down over the ocean, the sand comes to life and takes on the forms of an entire mini eco-system of aquatic life. Sea turtles are born, eels emerge to pursue their prey and Mother Earth orchestrates it all.

This is a film you have to take time for.
As a study of time in cinematic perception, Viennese media artist Gerald Zahn visualizes 5 minutes by filming a person holding his breath for the duration of the film.
In contrast with the casual disregard for mere 5 minutes in the film title, the film fills this period with significance. The emotional turmoils on the actor’s face as he fights through every second on the stop-watch, make 5 minutes a cinematic era of tension, impatience, doubt and expectation.
Für diesen Film müssen Sie sich Zeit nehmen.
Der Titel ist Programm. Angelegt als prosaische Studie zur filmischen Wahrnehmung von Zeit zeigt der Wiener Medienkünstler Gerald Zahn eine Person, die für die Dauer des Films ihren Atem anhält.
Der emotionale Aufruhr im Gesicht des Protagonisten, wie er sich von Sekunde zu Sekunde zur verrinnenden Zeit der Stoppuhr kämpft, machen 5 Minuten zu einer Achterbahnfahrt zwischen Spannung, Ungeduld, Zweifel und Erwartung.
